I worked as a lifeguard at a motel one summer when I was a teenager. There was a ping pong table next to the pool and I’d challenge and beat most of the guys who wanted to play. I did also watch the swimmers in the pool!

Evolutions is a wonderful place to work. It’s a small, family owned business and we’re all treated like family.

We all like each other and work well together.

I was a classical pianist, on a girl’s city basketball league and won a few beauty contests in college. I also won a ping pong trophy on a cruise ship and I still have the trophy.
